CCTV Monitoring

Remote CCTV monitoring on alarm activation is a cost-effective security solution that deters intruders and prevents criminal damage to any business or home.

Remotely monitored CCTV means the footage is viewed as it happens so immediate action can always be taken. VRC is here to ensure the safety and security of our customers and their properties. CCTV monitoring is typically done on alarm activation, meaning our operators will on receipt of an alarm, immediately dial into the sites CCTV system to verify the cause.

Benefits of

CCTV Monitoring

Pro-Active Criminal Deterrent

The main benefit of remote CCTV monitoring is the ability to be proactive in deterring crime rather than reacting after the fact. Reacting quickly when criminals enter your premises to commit theft or damage can reduce overall losses. It can protect even the most remote locations including depots and factories.


VRC operators can save you time and money by keeping your property safe 24/7. Remote CCTV monitoring is much more cost-effective than introducing security guards or mobile patrols, where you have to consider salary, sick time, holiday pay and other benefits. In addition, guards and patrols are not available every day of the year. The risk of human error with remote CCTV monitoring is very low, as our skilled operators can see the entire property using multiple cameras, meaning you are far less susceptible to theft.

Help the Emergency Services

It is often thought CCTV cameras alone are effective enough to keep your belongings and the property safe. But without effective CCTV monitoring, they can be manipulated on-site. Remote CCTV monitoring can get the best image possible of any intruder on the property, which will help the emergency services in making enquiries and building a criminal case.


How CCTV Monitoring Works

The remote CCTV monitoring system will connect to our state of the art, fully accredited NSI Gold, BS 5797 Category II Remote Video Response Centre. The on-site CCTV system connects to VRC’s servers via the Internet (IP or on 3G/4G). Our SIA licenced operators will then be able to view images from your cameras and respond to any alarm received. When an intruder is detected, an alarm is sent to the response centre to verify the cause. VRC will instantly evaluate the situation and refer to the response instructions as agreed with our customers before taking action. A typical response may include an audio warning to an intruder, notifying your keyholder or contacting the emergency services.

The connection between your CCTV system and our monitoring station can be armed 24/7, set on a schedule or manually armed on site at the end of the working day, we tailor solutions to every customers’ individual needs. VRC operators have the capacity to remotely control the cameras, using pan, tilt and zoom functions, switch the feed to different cameras or review past footage.

All images are recorded and stored safely and securely, integrity is one of VRC’s core values.
